About

After breaking box office records around the country with 5 sold-out seasons, the critically acclaimed smash-hit Simply Broadway returns- this time to the brand new Dome @ NSA stage in a spectacular outdoor once-off event.


From the creators of Disney in the Park, this unusual musical tribute weaves its way through the history of the 12 most prolific musicals that literally altered 42nd Street and the world of musical theatre forever. Featuring music from The Phantom of the Opera, Chicago, The Rocky Horror Show, Les Miserables, Rent, Porgy & Bess, West Side Story, Wicked and many more, Simply Broadway places its unique spin on timeless classics, stripping them down to their simplest and most exquisite form- providing a glittering yet quirky homage to the greatest musicals of all time.


Armed with jaw-dropping new music, meticulously re-imagined and reworked, this visionary 6th season is performed on a state-of-the-art outdoor stage (to observe covid compliance) but undoubtedly brings all the bells and whistles of being in a theatre.


“…Simply Broadway is performed with excellence, charm and grandeur reminding the audience of all the reasons they love the theatre.” (Cue, 2013) “With dazzling performances and strikingly stylish costume design, Simply Broadway is a unique blend of beautiful renditions of some musical theatres most famous songs, along with a dash of cheeky charm- a cherry on top of a fabulous romp of a show” (Melville Times, 2014).


Gloriously lit, with surround sound and staged against the faint setting sun- grab your picnic goodies and bundle up so we can get you hot under the collar! Refreshments will be on sale, and safe and secure parking is provided! Please note: no mask, no entry.


Forget about winter- come and shiver with antici…..pation instead as Simply Broadway brings theatre BACK!
